Watching a celebrity chef prepare a recipe on TV can be a lot of fun, but in reality, the same recipe prepared at home usually falls short? often the result of hard-to-find ingredients, imprecise directions, and overly complicated techniques. America's Test Kitchen isn't about fancy restaurant cooking. It's about home cooking and the techniques and details that separate failed recipes from successful ones. With this companion to our 2006 season, we walk you step-by-step through every recipe prepared on our show (and we also give you all the valuable ingredient and equipment ratings from the show.) Home cooking has never been this foolproof (or fun).
